Overrated and Underrated Coaches

Pretty simple thread. Just looking to get everyone's take on who is the most (or some of the most) overrated and underrated coaches in the NFL. And hey, why not extend this to coordinators as well. Should be fun.

OVERRATED

For my money, Jeff Fisher is far and away the most overrated Head Coach there is. After taking the Titans to a Super Bowl in 99 (a century ago!), the best he could do was lead them to a Championship game loss in 2002. He stayed on with the Titans for 8 more seasons after that, leading them to the playoffs just 3 times. Really, I think he's been milking that near Super Bowl win for far too long now. After having such a lengthy career without a ring, you need way more success and many more playoff trips than that. It's why I don't think Andy Reid makes this list.

Runner-up: John Fox. Sorry, but I fully credit Mike McCoy his first year with the Broncos for turning that team around and as for last year, well, it wouldn't be the first time Peyton made a mediocre coach look like a genius. As for his time in Carolina, again, outside of that Super Bowl losing season, not that impressive.

UNDERRATED

Mike Tomlin. I honestly have no idea why this guy is isn't a consensus Top 3 Head Coach (the two higher being Belichick and Coughlin). If he can lead this weak-as-ever Steelers team to the playoffs this season, he's a star in my mind.
